Mount Allison's bursary program offers assistance to students who have financial need in order to help provide access to post-secondary education.

All incoming students are eligible to apply for Mount Allison's entrance bursaries. Entrance bursaries assist incoming full-time students who have financial need. Bursaries are based on demonstrated financial need and are intended to supplement, but not replace, a student's own resources and the resources of the applicant's immediate family and/or calculated parental contribution as indicated by provincial and/or federal student loans.


Applying for entrance bursaries

Once you've received your offer of admission to Mount Allison, you can apply for entrance bursaries through your Connect@MTA account – a secure student network that will be provided to you at the time of admission. 

MARCH 1: Bursary application deadline

Bursary funding is contingent upon your eligibility to receive government student loans in your province.

For a better understanding of how to apply, read our bursaries FAQ.

*For guaranteed entrance scholarship and entrance bursary consideration, applications must be submitted by March 1. For applications received after March 1, entrance scholarships and bursaries will be assessed on a case-by-case basis and are not guaranteed consideration.  


Combining scholarships and bursaries

Please note that students who apply for bursaries can also apply for scholarships. Renewable bursaries may be renewed for a total of four years of continuous study.

New students not considered for an entrance bursary may also apply to Mount Allison’s in-term bursary program upon arriving on campus in the fall. For more information contact financialaid@mta.ca
